Today the Poulettes have decided to take up a challenge: create a shutter card. It looked like something fun to make, so everybody wanted to give it a try. Let’s see what each one has created by hopping from one blog to another!
You should have arrived from Mylou’s blog. If not, head to the end of this post to start at the beginning.
Here is what I came up with: a masculine Valentines shutter card!
I used this tutorial from StampInTexas to make my shutter card. It’s very easy to make and I’ll make more in the future because they are really fun! I did not want to play with traditional Valentines colours, because my husband likes more masculine colours and patterns.
I used Sahara Sand cardstock as the card base. The front panels were stamped in Pacific Point, Marina Mist and Sahara Sand, with a stamp I never used before: the “angle” one from the Dotty Angles set. I have been wondering how to use it from quite a long time, so I’m really chuffed to bit to have found a nice project for it. I like to use all the stamps from a stamp set and I frequently use the “dotty” stamp, so now I feel happy 🙂
The inside is made with another panel, stamped in the same colours as above, but this time the little dotty lines are from the Watercolour Wings stamp set. The panel was die cut with a circle, to create a window for my sentiment, wich is die cut too with a smaller circle.
The “shutter” part is made with two banner die cuts in Pacific Point. They show the sentiment when you open the card!
Lastly, a Sahara Sand belly band holds everything together. I added two stars in Pacific Point and Marina Mist and another sentiment from Watercolor Wings. The stars have been decorated with a blue gel pen.
That’s it! Now I hope my photo addict husband will like it! 🙂
Stamps: Dotty Angles, Watercolor Wings,
Dies: Stars thinlits, Banner thinlits, Circle thinlits
Inks & Papers: Sahara Sand, Marina Mist, Pacific Point

The card I share today came up very quickly. I had a precise idea in mind and it all came together nicely: don’t you like it when it happens? 🙂
I love tag cards, I think they are perfect to put into relief your image or your sentiment. And I wanted to make the stunning tree of the Sheltering Tree stamp set very special, because it’s so beautiful.
First of all, I stamped the tree in Soft Suede (the photo makes it darker, but in reality it’s a nice warm brown), then the leaves in Blushing Bride. Before stamping, I used a sponge dauber to ink some of the leaves in Calypso Coral. Then I fussy-cut the tree. I made a tag from a piece of cardstock and added faux-stitching with a gel pen. The white cardstock of the tag seemed a bit harsh so I toned it down with a light cover of Blushing Bride, applied with another sponge dauber. I punched a hole, looked for a ribbon in my stash to find a colour similar to the pinks I used. Too bad I didn’t have any Stampin’Up! matching ribbon, this is precisely what I love in this company, every products goes together!
The card base is a retired colour cardstock, Pretty in Pink, because I didn’t have any Blushing Bride left! I really have to put an order soon 😉 but I think it went well with the other shades of pink anyway. I randomly stamped the standalone “pack” of leaves with Blushing Bride ink to give a bit of texture and adhered the tad, the tree and the sentiment (also stamped in Soft Suede and hand cut) with foam pads. Of course there had to be some bling, so a few rhinestones were added here and there…
I’d like to link this card to the Inkspirational challenge: Rose colours
And also to the Stampin’Up! Only challenge: Valentine wishes!

Here is a serie of cards I made for Valentine’s day. I used a fun snake stamp my Mum gave me… how cute is he ? 🙂
I wanted to try something else with the little snake, so I made something more… dramatic 😉
Supplies : (to come)
